Off the shoulder tops and dresses are so popular this summer, and are definitely a wardrobe staple must have and necessity in every woman’s closet. One of the best aspects of off the shoulder tops are how subtlety sexy  and feminine they are. You’re not showing off anything inappropriate, just a few more inches of your neck and shoulder area, but the effect on your overall look is a subtle hint of sexiness. The over the shoulder look has been with us since the 1800’s (yes, they were quite fashionable back then) and over the years it has seen being reinvented time and time again.
The over the top dresses and tops come in so many different prints, patterns and colours but my favourite is this rust one from Lace & Heels Boutique. The long wide ruffled sleeves adds a 70’s element glamour and femininity to the look. The colour really suits any complexion and the dress itself is really complimentary on any woman’s body shape.  You can wear off the shoulder tops with any sort of staple, whether its jeans, shorts or a skirt, it will give you outfit a complete stylish look.





Wanna Know Off Shoulder Dress in Rust by Lace N Heels Boutique, Gladiator lace-up sandals by Sportsgirl, Choker by Sportsgirl and Sunglasses by Mango

This dress sits so perfectly off the shoulders and the hemline sits just slightly above your knees giving it that slightly sexy look but keeping it very modest and sweet looking.
 You can style it with sandals or espadrilles and/or as I have done here with gladiator sandals to create a casual dressed up look for day time or with wedges or heels for a stylish night time look.
